1 I picked up a few bits of news and was introduced to the Professor.
2 Professor Bhaer was there, and while he arranged his books, I took a good look at him.
3 "I should like much to send all the rest after him," muttered the Professor, coming back with a relieved air.
4 The Professor didn't know what to make of her, and stopped at last to ask with an air of mild surprise that was irresistible.
5 The solitary woman felt an interest in the ambitious girl, and kindly conferred many favors of this sort both on Jo and the Professor.
6 She looked round to see how the Professor liked it, and found him looking at her with the grimmest expression she had ever seen him wear.
7 She had betrayed herself, however, by a look and a blush, for though an absent man, the Professor saw a good deal more than people fancied.
8 Jo valued goodness highly, but she also possessed a most feminine respect for intellect, and a little discovery which she made about the Professor added much to her regard for him.
9 Come, then, and take a goot hug from him, my Tina, said the Professor, catching her up with a laugh, and holding her so high over his head that she had to stoop her little face to kiss him.
10 It all grew out of a cocked hat, for one evening the Professor came in to give Jo her lesson with a paper soldier cap on his head, which Tina had put there and he had forgotten to take off.
11 Lifting his hand to his head, the absent-minded Professor gravely felt and removed the little cocked hat, looked at it a minute, and then threw back his head and laughed like a merry bass viol.
12 One of the girls kept laughing affectedly, and saying, "Now Professor," in a coquettish tone, and the other pronounced her German with an accent that must have made it hard for him to keep sober.
13 Cast away at the very bottom of the table was the Professor, shouting answers to the questions of a very inquisitive, deaf old gentleman on one side, and talking philosophy with a Frenchman on the other.
14 The Professor was very patient with me, but it must have been torment to him, and now and then he'd look at me with such an expression of mild despair that it was a toss-up with me whether to laugh or cry.
15 She did neither, but she remembered the scene, and gave the Professor her heartiest respect, for she knew it cost him an effort to speak out then and there, because his conscience would not let him be silent.
16 She felt proud to know that he was an honored Professor in Berlin, though only a poor language-master in America, and his homely, hard-working life was much beautified by the spice of romance which this discovery gave it.
17 Here the lecture began, but Jo heard very little of it, for while Professor Sands was prosing away about Belzoni, Cheops, scarabei, and hieroglyphics, she was covertly taking down the address of the paper, and boldly resolving to try for the hundred-dollar prize offered in its columns for a sensational story.
